Save $200 a Year by Using a Clothesline
Go back in time and dry your clothes on an old-fashioned clothesline. It’ll save your family about $200 per year compared to using an electric dryer — according to electricity-saving-expert Michael Bluejay — plus your clothes will last much longer. If you need to buy a new dryer, wait until Labor Day to get the best deals.
